What's Included


The Asian American Adventist Church (CA) Project is one of our many efforts based in North America. Each year, Maranatha works with organizations in the United States and Canada to provide volunteer labor for various construction or renovation projects. Volunteers will construct a new 4200 sq. ft. church addition for the congregation. They will help with the wood framing, siding, window installation as well as roofing.
